Step 1: Choosing Screw

Take a screw. The choice of the screw is important. You can use slotted heads, and circular heads of different sizes to get different shapes.

It is preferable to have a screw with long length so as to assist in holding.

Step 2: Mixing Color

Use a brush to color the head of the screw.

Have a visual inspection to make sure that the screw head is properly coated with color.

The water content in the color should be minimal.

Step 3: Getting Impressions

Now put the screw head on the drawing sheet and press hold for 3-5 secs.

Start putting impressions of different colour in your drawing.
